An Idea For 2018

I'm at the point in the year where I've started to think about what to do for 2018.

An idea struck me a few weeks ago and I'm considering it for - for want of a better word - experimental purposes.

If you read this blog at certain points over the summer and into a few weeks ago, I'm sure you might have stumbled across one of the Scratchin' posts where I wrote about having purchased one National Lottery scratch card, won a few pounds on it and decided to buy more cards instead of cashing in. I wanted to see how far my luck would go before running out.

Well - I've decided to expand on this idea.

What I'm considering is buying a scratch card for every day of 2018. The worst this experiment will do is cost me £365 over the fifty-two weeks.

I have a plan, though.

Instead of buying one card a day. What I'm going to do is purchase a roll (31,28,30 etc) at the start of each month and then scratch off one a day. As the summer proved, having a roll of cards lined up gives me a better chance of winning something rather than picking up one a day.

It could be one of the stupidest ideas I've ever thought of.

Or maybe it won't be.

I'll have a year to work out which of the above two sentences is the most fitting.
